Miletich Martial Arts fighter Spencer Fisher heads into UFC 78 in Newark, N.J. Nov. 17 to take on undefeated lightweight Frankie Edgar. Fisher endured a setback in his climb up the lightweight ladder when he lost via TKO to Hermes Franca at the beginning of this year, but the Iowan came back strong in June to avenge a loss to Sam Stout at UFC Fight Night 10.

interesting interview !!
he seem ready and not over confident so, i am happy with my fisher RD 2 ko !!!
Me thinks that Mr. Fischer might be a bit worried. When I read his comment about not wanting Edgar to turn it into a boring wrestling match...it made me think that he knows if it goes to the floor he cant get up, sweep, or sub him. I thnk he tried to take a jab at Frankie so he keeps it standing where Spencer is most comfortable. Just a thought, and I think that Fischer came off as a really cool guy and I think he's a really good and entertaining fighter. That just jumped out at me. Hopefully it's a war no matter where this fight ends up.
oh and edgar by SD...great match-up mr silva!!
nice fellow. really wanna see him and BJ fight
frank edgar is the real deal, fisher could be in trouble. i also got the feeling that spencer is nervous if it turns into a ground fight. oh ya i think bj penn would prolly destroy spencer if they ever fought.
Should be a pretty action packed fight. Both fighters really go out there and bring it.
Nice classic match-up of wrestler vs boxer here...should be a good sprawl and brawl!!
honestly this fight is gonna be fotn for sure. fisher says hes doing a lot of wrestling but i hope hes training a lot off his back. his stand up is awesom as it is so focusing on that would help em take the fight a lot easier. frank on the other hand has good poxing himself and i dont see much lay and pray from him. its always scramble and strike from him. i really like how most of the lightweight devisions grapplers are crazy fast and dont just grind there way through the fight.
fisher by 2nd rnd KO
i could see edgar getting a boring lay and pray decision
but i would much rather see a war and i know thats exactly what spencer will bring
